The Yurok Economic Development Corporation (YEDC) wanted to grow the Yurok Tribe’s tourist economy through the amplification of their small businesses. These businesses include the Redwood Hotel & Casino and fuel marts, the visitor center, as well as outdoor experiences provided by redwood canoe tours, jet boat tours, and RV parks. As champions of intentional, authentic marketing, our team wanted to establish Yurok Country as a leading voice of native culture and indigenous tourism for the Redwoods and the Klamath River.
How Illuminated Marketing Helped
Social Media video and photoshoot
Social media management
Our team made monthly visits to Klamath and created a robust media library of high quality photos and video footage to be used across various marketing channels. Rather than post for the sake of posting, we work closely with the YEDC to maintain up-to-date and nuanced marketing content. Centered on the natural beauty of the region and the cultural and traditional practices of the Yurok Tribe, our social campaigns have driven immense traffic to YEDC’s social platforms, driving Instagram followers up to nearly 40k, and adding 115k new visitors to their Facebook page in less than a year.
